Responding to a tweet by reliable journalist James Pearce, some Reds fans have fumed over insight surrounding the club’s past documentary ‘Being: Liverpool’ – lambasting the show as a ‘shambles‘ and ‘laughing stock‘.
Pearce, writing in The Athletic, gave insight into how the documentary came to pass – speaking particularly about the control Liverpool had over how the club looked upon it’s release whilst also addressing the controversy former manager Brendan Rodgers received due to his soundbites.
The documentary series, which started filming eight years ago, was released on Fox in 2012 – containing six episodes which captured inside footage from Melwood, Anfield and Liverpool football club as a whole.
What did you think of the documentary?
Looking back on it’s release, journalist Pearce has even hinted that the presence of Fox’s camera crew could have had a toll on Rodgers – who had just taken over from Kenny Dalglish at the time.
Discussing the regrettable series, some Liverpool fans have also looked back, but it’s safe to say they have no fond memories.

It was a shambles and we were a laughing stock. That’s all there is to it

Totally ridiculous and unnecessary. Luckily we’ve got Klopp now and he’d never allow this to interfere with footballing matters. Steady now.

Everything about this was just so wrong. We deserved to be a banter club when this came out

It was a PR disaster

Rodgers thought it was cringeworthy.
I tend to agree.
It seemed to have been developed mainly for the US audience once FSG took over.
